Clinic Services

Urgent Care is Open, Clean and Safe

Multiple clinics are open daily for treatment of non-COVID illnesses and injuries. Please come in if you have a health care need that requires immediate attention. 

As always, we also follow rigorous cleaning standards. We require everyone who enters our clinic to wear a facemask and also maintain a 6-foot distance between staff and patients in our waiting areas.

 

Seasonal Illness and COVID-19 Services 

Patients with illness symptoms, regardless of the cause, can be seen at the below clinics. 
 
We are pleased to offer a short, comfortable swab for COVID-19 testing. Under the guidance of our provider, patients can swab themselves or their children, and the swab only needs to be inserted about half an inch into the nose. Results are back in 3 - 5 days.
 
We are currently testing:
  • Patients who have symptoms consistent with COVID-19
  • Patients with NO symptoms of COVID-19 who desire be tested
If you need to be seen for illness or COVID-19 symptoms, please call one of our clinics below for a same-day appointment. Our medical team can also evaluate and test for other illnesses including influenza and strep.

Our COVID-19 symptom checker can also help you determine the best way to access care. 

COVID-19 Antibody Testing

Primary Health does not currently offer antibody testing due to uncertainty about test accuracy and COVID-19 immunity. Most insurance companies do not pay for antibody testing. 

COVID-19 Prevention and Resources 

Here’s what you can do to protect yourself and your loved ones:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.  
  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based sanitizer with at least 60 % alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
